    I found the thread on changing rear differential fluid, is there a thread with pictures on changing it for a second gen Taco? I've heard you might not have to on them since its independent suspention? And also I have an '05 heard it has a sealed tranny, and dont have to change oil? again worries me? Thanks for responses!!!

    I would suggest reading your manual. Regardless of IFS, it still has a differential which contains fluid to prevent wear and tear which, in turn, will need replaced.

    You still have to get the tranny serviced. Toyota recently lowered the service interval from 100k to 60k miles on the "sealed" tranny.

    I can't recall offhand, but toyotanation had a complete how to thread on front and rear diff fluid change. I did mine at 30k on the clock.

    I got a question. When I changed everything the rear diff was gray and had steel splinters on the magnet. The front diff, tranfer case and trans fluid was all clear and looked good. Should I just change the rear diff next time or change it more often then the rest ?[​IMG]

    I recommend doing them all at the same time regardless of how the fluid looks in one vs. the other. It's not too difficult but who wants to crawl under there more times than they have to?
